character to this individual and let it manifest itself through dialogue. if he has these kind of issues pair noi thea and so forth, he has a story. obviously he would until have initiated this action and taken the course of action that he has done unless he wanted to put across some sort of statement. it will be the negotiator's responsibility as they try to get this emotionality down and allow him to be more realistic. >> does time work in the law enforcement's favor? this is a true hostage situation. this is not a pseudohottastage
5:10 pm
situation. this boy has been taken for leverage purposes. the passage of time is important. frankly i think the family can take a little positive aspect or positive hope from that fact that he has allowed them to deliver medication. he has provided them if the boy requested the coloring book and so forth and allowed that to be delivered, those are huge indicators of progress. that is good news to end on tonight. appreciate your expertise. thank you very much. let us know what you are thinking. we'll be following this over the course of the hour. just no shortage of passion from others testifying.

5:14 pm
a man holds a child at gunpoint after shooting and killing a schoolbus driver. those are two headlines from today. there have been others recently. some far worse of course. how big a role if any does easy access to firearms play in situations like this? and are both sides building their cases on shaky ground? former congresswoman gabby
5:15 pm
giffords spoke of the need for action. >> thank you for inviting me here today. this is an important conversation for our children and our communities and for democrats and republicans speaking is difficult but i need to say something important. violence is a big problem. too many children are dying. too many children. we must do something. it will be hard, but the time is
5:16 pm
now. you must act be bold, be courageous americans are counting on you thank you. >> she spoke from handwritten note that is were posted on the facebook page that she and her husband markety founded. commander kelly at one point answering that background checks don't need to be made universal. >> my wife would not be sitting here today if we had stronger background checks. >> banning high capacity magazines, now there is one problem, both sides in the gun
5:17 pm
debate use them to make their case. independent studies including one from the clinton justice department -- >> the report as a percentage of gun traces which shows a 70 percent decline. >> while armed security works guns do not. >> i have seen an explosion of fire power since the ban expired. >> to reinact a law that according to the department of justice did nothing to reduce gun violence. the assault weapon ban did not stop columbine. >> the department found the ban inhe effective. >> there is no clear-cut way of
5:18 pm
telling who is. because each side accuses each of cherry picking the data. there is not enough good research to draw a solid conclusion. take a look at what the research report concluded. none of the existing sources of statistics provide comprehensive timely or accurate data with which to assess defentively whether there is a cause of connection between causes and firearms. congress doesn't pay for it. from 1993 through 1996, congressional located millions of dollars to study gun violence. since 1996, the money has dried up. over $100,000 a year and a budget of nearly $6 billion. having said all of that, that has not stopped community makers
5:19 pm
from doing what they can from learning as they go. ray kelly joins me now. you pint to the fact that handguns on the streets is a problem. will anything in the current debate whether it is limited high-capacity magazines will that limit the lethality? >> i think it can help but there is no easy answer. i think the background checks if they are done properly can make a difference. the major problem for new york city is the concealable handguns. >> everyone is focusing on assault type rivals. are you - poseed to ban on that? >> no. but the impact in new york city
5:20 pm
will be minimal the nra says clearly existing laws are not being enforced that the number of people who lie that limits that. the federal government is restricted on how they can do an investigation. >> is it a fair argument? they are saying criminals will never submit to gak ground checks. you need to execute existing laws greater. they are saying it is either or.
5:21 pm
you can do both and it makes sense to me to do both. >> what do you make of their argument that criminals will not submit to background checks? >> how critical is this? >> sit is not just in gun shows. it is estimated that 40% of gun that is are sold are sold without any sort of registration or background checks. it amounted to six million guns last year. i think it will deter criminals from buying guns. not an easy answer. there is no magic bullet here. i think each one of these pieces can help to reduce the problem.
5:22 pm
where do the guns come from? >> 90% of our guns come from out of state. we call it the iron pipeline. they haven't been giving drug data to the mental health database. >> some states think that there are privacy issues when there aren't. but we know now, some states have held onto 600 thousand records. now that flow is beginning to move as a result of all of the attention on the issue. >> do you think something has changed after newtown? do you think there is enough will and there will be some sort of legislation or early stricter
5:23 pm
gun background checks. i think there will be something. you can see as long as the can is kicked out in the road we are going to have less and less of a chance of getting significant change. >> do you see a reason why some folks should have semiout automatic military style weapons or clips with 30 rounds of ammunition. i think the so called assault weapons scare people. they are weaponing of war and went to kill people. having said that, i think we'll have them with us for a long time to come. >> what about the idea of arming
5:24 pm
people in schools do you worry about that? >> i don't think that is the right way to go. it would take a lot of resource to do that. i think that amount of money and resources would be better spent in a lot of ways. to move to have arms officers or arms security guards in schools would be a tremendous not waste, but it would be a tremendous investment of resources that could be better spent in other places. >> commissionerno appreciate yo time. tomorrow night we are gathering people from all sides of the gun debate. for a 360 televised town hall. we are trying to cut through the noise and politics of this all. we are trying to get information that makes a difference. tweet us using hash tag gun

imagine seeing this touchdown and moved across the state leaving a trail of imagine in it's wake. cars overturned authorities were forced to shutdown the interstate. today storms hammering the country from michigan to the louisiana coastline. is this strange to be seeing tornados in january? >> good question. there are 40 tornados every january. but they follow the jet stream. yes, strange. follow where the jet stream is and that is where the potential is. it is down here and that is where the tornados would be. and by tornado alley standards. you can get them up into can daxt because that is where the jet stream is.

5:42 pm
tv it got so bad that prosecutors had to drop murder charges in the middle of the trial. offered him a plea deal. louis plead guilty to a charge of obstruction of justice but that didn't help. both of those men were acquitted. ray louis said he was the peace maker but he said that was not the case. >> was ray involved in the fighting? >> in my opinion yes. i know he was right in the midst there with everyone else. >> his side has said hey, he was trying to be the peace maker in that situation. >> i didn't see that. when the police asked him what happened. he wouldn't come clean. >> he was not involved in the fight. i didn't take an step, a statement to make this happen. he was no more guilty than 100
